Few games have tapped into the potential of a Mesoamerican setting, meaning whenever one does, it stands out. Aztech Forgotten Gods certainly does, and then some.
The game is set in an alternate universe Mesoamerica that never saw contact with European powers from across the Atlantic, meaning the capital Tenochtitlan has thrived and become a high-tech metropolis that still shows the cultural heritage of the region in its architecture.
Heroine Achtli accidentally awakens ancient stone collosi during an archaelogical expedition and has to set about saving the day with the powers granted to her by a strange stone prosthetic arm. The hub world also promises “optional side stories” and various upgrades and outfits to unlock.
